Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Development releases regularly do not fit into the 700MB limit, this will be sorted out during the release cycle and is mentioned in the release notes[1]: "This release is for developers only. Most of these images are oversize;" It is therefore not necessary to report it as a bug.

Please continue to report any other bugs you may find.

FWIW, on my drive, I get "write track data: error after 736905216 bytes"
ubuntu-9.04 was 732909568, and worked fine. So it looks ike it's only 15MB too big for my cd-r drive.
